Neste Oil aims to use its resources as efficiently as possible. For example, in 2013 over 50% of renewable raw materials used by the company consisted of waste and residues.
Conventional oil refining is highly efficient in terms of material usage, as virtually all the feedstock used can be refined into products or feedstocks for other industrial uses. Oil refining also generates very little waste, as any product not meeting the quality requirements can be returned to the process and re-refined.
